Shoulder Pain Relief – Case Study 2 – Sports Massage

A lady in her mid-30’s attended with a recent history of frozen shoulder. Osteopathy and ultrasound had helped by reducing the pain and getting the shoulder moving again, but she plays tennis at her local club and felt her shoulder was still weak. She was also getting headaches frequently.

Sports massage was used to reduce the muscle tension in her neck and shoulders, improve her shoulder mobility and increase strength in her weak shoulder.

After 4 treatments she reported:

  • fewer headaches
  • a gradual return to strength in her shoulder
  • less aching after playing tennis. 

Stretches and postural advice were given to help her manage her symptoms at home.

She continues to attend every 3-4 months for maintenance and prevention.
